Interns get the eclipse experience
UAE: The most recent batch of interns to pass through the eclipse warehouse in Dubai have been given a comprehensive grounding in the challenges that can be thrown at events professionals in the Middle East. While the international team has worked on a variety of events of all sizes, the standout was the challenges presented by RedFest DXB.
‘My internship with eclipse has prepared me for the industry ahead and has given me the experience needed to tackle future challenges,’ said audio department intern, Nicholas Fenton. ‘Working with the incredible audio department to give support on projects such as Party in the Park, RedFest and Jazz Fest has been a privilege, exceeding my expectations of Dubai.’
Developed in 2015 by eclipse’s general manager Martin Lubach, the initiative is one of many endeavours the company has introduced as part of Mark Brown’s mission to contribute to the education and training in the industry. This year, the interns have come from the University of Bolton Backstage Academy and the University of South Wales in the UK, South Africa’s Academy of Sound Engineering and SAE Institute, UAE.
‘This season has been an exciting one for the team and I am glad that the interns were here to experience it with us,’ said Mr Lubach. ‘During their time with us, I hope that we have inspired them to continue with their chosen careers and come back to us after college to take the industry by storm! We wish them all the best, and look forward to seeing what they achieve in the future.’
